Army Ideas
« on: May 22, 2009, 08:49:00 AM »
Just wanted to start a thread about off the wall/different army ideas people think up of:

Some examples I heard of/thought up:

All Airborne Capital army of Death from above. - not recommended for urban/underground scenarios

All stealth Imperial army

All light infantry with no SMG Capital

All dog and handler Capital - not sure if legal

All Trencher Imperial

Dave has his Vulkan army of doom also.

Anyone else????




Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.
What do you mean Flash Gordon approaching? OPEN FIRE!
The entire Capitol Army.

I've got 12 Mortificators.  It's fun to put them all on the board.

I also think it would freak people out if when you set up you had no deployment cards until infiltrators are placed-

Capital with airborne rangers and rangers only. Could set up at least 4 cards infiltrated with two of them dummy cards.

Anyway to have an army all in transports???

Neat idea.


How about a Capital with Airborne Rangers and Wailing Banshees only. Very quick and precise strikes.

Because transports are support, the best you can do (I think) is one squad in two (one for every two grunt units per pg 37).

But if half your army mutines and kills the other half then each squad would get it's own ride   ;D
